How is HELLO TOMATO nail polish non irritating?

Omitting potentially harmful synthetics, harsh solvents and preservatives, our nail polish uses a water based formula. Gentle enough for your sensitive skin and nose.

Who can use HELLO TOMATO?

People with sensitivities to chemicals and has adverse reactions to even non-toxic polishes which might still include irritants such as ethyl and butyl acetate. Anyone who is looking for an alternative nail polish that aligns with their philosophy of clean living. If you have hypersensitive skin, please do a patch test on a small area of your skin first before application, and don't use the ERASER GEL as it contains alcohol.

What if I don't have any sensitivities to regular polishes?

Our nail polish was not created for people who are used to long wearing gel and acrylic polishes. Because it's a water based formulation, it can't be as durable as regular polishes. So if you are used to those, it will take a whole new mindset to justify that switch. HELLO TOMATO will last half the time of regular polishes before it starts to chip, and needs our Eraser Gel to remove instead of Acetone.

Why is your packaging so basic?

Even though it's wonderful to receive a well presented custom packaging, it is momentary and at the core of it, an unnecessary use of exess paper and ink. The likelihood that it'll end up getting discarded is the same, so our packaging is simply meant to protect the products during transit.
